United States Time Zone Map



NOTE (1):
Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time (link is external). Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings, with the exception of the Navajo Nation. Arizona previously observed Daylight Savings beginning in 1918, but made the permanent change to Standard time in 1968.
Time zones in the United States developed in the mid-nineteenth century to accommodate railroad schedules, which required standardizing time across the nation. Before the adoption of time zones, local communities each observed their own time schedules.

SOURCE: Katie Hobbs, Secretary of State – State of Arizona

Note (2): … Using your cellphone … you can add a “CLOCK app”.  Then add/input your local time + Phoenix, AZ … etc.
Cost of a Clock app is minimal ... maybe a few dollars ... Some cellphones come with a clock app.

Time zones: you can add multiple "World  Clock" zones in the standard iPhone clock app. I used to have Salt Lake City in there when I did remote work (from East Coast) for a s/w group out there.

Getting ready to head to the show. Was at San Bernardino and this might be my last live show. 

Excited to see the debut of Blue Knights.

Looking forward to see the additions to BD's show and see how SCV ends their show tonight.

I remember the 2007 show which was also at SunDevil Stadium was interrupted by a monsoon thunderstorm.  Lightning was close enough that the corps that was playing had to leave the field.  After a long delay, the remaining groups just did their shows in stand still, if I remember correctly.

No rain tonight , though 🤞
